MWEA - Project/Committee Seminar Presentations

Name:Effective Utility Management

Utility of the Future, Water Resource Recovery Facilities, Culture, Organization, Innovation, and a range of other terms and ideas are frequently used in talks, sales literature, and articles. The Water Resources Division of Michigan DEQ issued a grant to MWEA to assist in launching Recycling Metrics and the concept of the Utility of the Future more than a year ago. The effort has resulted in a Leadership Summit, Vision Document, surveys and reports, but many have asked for guidance in how to become a Utility of the Future. Just how does a utility go about becoming a Water Resource Utility of the Future? MWEA thinks the answer to that question lies in the guidance and resources provided by Effective Utility Management Initiative. The EUM initiative allows each utility to proceed in a manner that meets its own particular needs and to proceed at its own pace.
